as a tactic. >> the democrats including the president when he was a senator voted against raising the debt ceiling -- >> not enough -- >> some democrats. but not to this extent and not in a partiwide thing. this is important for the president for a couple reasons. one of them is his second term agenda. which we're looking at the challenges of in a "huffington post" series called the road forward. if he wants to go forward, if he wants to complete the job on health care and on bank regulation and on immigration and on a whole host of things, he's got to beat the republicans politically. he's got to beat them on spending, and he's got to back them into a corner politically. he's got a chance to be more consequential in a second term -- this is usual -- >> what's his one two three agen agenda. >> gun control, immigration reform, and number one is what chuck was grilling him on today, which is his strategy on beating the republicans on debt and spending. >> fiscal victory -- >> then immigration and gun control. >> is that how you see it one, two, three, chuck? >> he can't do anything until the

time, the president rejected urgings by some democrats that he raised the debt ceiling on his own authority. republicans were quick to answer the chief executive's criticism. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell said in a statement the president and his allies need to get serious about spending and the debt limit debate is the perfect time for it. and speaker of the house john boehner said the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real but so too are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. the spending and debt issues took most of the president's attention today, but he also turned to the issue of gun violence. after the shootings at an elementary school in newtown connecticut, he appointed vice president biden to come up with recommendations for action. the vice president met with lawmakers today and with groups on both sides of the issue last week. plans to submit proposals by tomorrow. president obama would not discuss specifics today. instead he said this. >> i'm confident that there are some steps that we can take that don't re

on this debt ceiling issue. i know you've said you're not negotiating on it. your administration has ruled out the various ideas that have been out there, the 14th amendment. but just this morning, one of the house democratic leaderships, jim clyburn, asked you to use the 14th amendment and said, sometimes that's what it takes. he brought up the emancipation proclamation, and he compared the debt ceiling to that. so are you considering a plan "b"? and if not, why not? >> well, chuck, the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. and so there's a very simple solution to this. congress authorizes us to pay our bills. now, if the house and the senate want to give me the authority, so that they don't have to take these tough votes, if they want to put the responsibility on me to raise the debt ceiling, i'm happy to take it. mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate, had a proposal like that last year. and i'm happy to accept it. but if they want to keep this responsibility, then they need to go ahead and get it done. and you know, there are no ma

on the debt ceiling and on gun control. senate majority leader harry reid along are senators durbin, schumer, and murray sent a letter to the president urging him be ready to raise the nation's debt limit himself. quote, we believe you must be willing to take any lawful steps to ensure that america does not break its promises and trigger a global economic crisis without congressional approval, if necessary. let's bring in democratic strategist margie omaro and deputy press secretary tony fratto. marg margie, should the president go s solo? >> it's certainly consistent with what the american people want. the american people, both in the polls and at the polls, have said that they want progress and movement, not more bickering and gridlock. when you see some of these quotes, chris, from republicans saying, we need a government shutdown out of our system, we need to show voters we're ready to fight and we're fighting. voters don't want more fighting. >> south carolina congresswoman clyburn who is number three democrat in the house said the president should take matters into his own hands if he
at the confirmation hearings. also congress has got to deal with the debt ceiling. we're hitting it yet again. sometime in mid-february, authorities believe. and this time it looks like republicans will be pushing for cuts and social will be on the table. finally, you mentioned vice president biden meeting today with cabinet members to finalize recommendations on guns including pushing for an assault weapons ban, but also what he said is a comprehensive approach to gun control. the nra and others don't believe in assault weapons ban can pass in congress. we'll get his recommendations tomorrow. >> thank you. >>> colin powell is speaking out on nbc's "meet the press" he endorsed chuck hagel to be the new defense secretary. he said hagel would do a great job at the pentagon. powell also fired harsh words at his own republican party. >> there's also a dark -- a dark vain of intolerance in some parts of the party. what do i mean by that? what i mean by that they still sort of look down on minorities. how can i evidence that? when i see a former governor say that the president is shucking and jivin
some sort of executive action on this debt ceiling issue. i know you have said you're not negotiating that. your administration has ruled out the various ideas that have been out there, the 14th amendment that just this morning house -- one of the house democratic leaders asked you to use the 14th amendment, and even said sometimes that's what it takes. he brought up the emancipation probleming clamation. he compared the debt ceiling to that. are you considering a plan b? if not, why not? >> well, chuck, the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. so there's a very simple solution to this. congress authorizes us to pay our bills. if the house and the senate want to give me the authority so that they don't have to take these tough votes, if they want to put the responsibility on me to raise the debt ceiling, i'm happy to take it. mitch mcconnell had a proposal like that last year, and i'm happy to accept it, but if they want to keep this responsibility, then they need to go ahead and get it done. there are no magic tricks here. there are no lo
during the debt ceiling negotiations in 2011, the summer of 2011, a senior democrat suggests, why tonight you have a bunch of folks over to dinner, and the president said, no, i'm not going to do that. that's his job. >> they argue, or the president, i should say, argues, they take absolutist positions, and they're the ones who are refusing to negotiate. true or not? >> look, i think it's easy to demonize people when you don't know them. that's what dana's hearing from the hill. even democrats don't know the president very well. >> and here's an example of that. joe manch in, probably the most conservative democrat in the senate now, when he was first elected, he heard from the president, and then not again till he came out against guns. the whole idea is kind of surprising, because every senate vote matter, and joe manchin is somebody who strayed. er in mind not talking to republicans, it's fellow democrats he needs and doesn't always have. >> are we talking about it and it's kind of a washington parlor game, are they friends, are they not friends -- >> no, it matters, it matters. >> bil
have this fight over the debt ceiling, but it is about bigger issues. the debt ceiling has nothing to do with immigration reform, nothing to do with the proposals on gun control, nothing to do with anything else the president might want to do in his second term, but guess what, it does affect the climate in washington. and the fact that he does not have a more trusting, even a private back channel relationship with the key republican leaders is one of the -- one of the reasons and they had responsibility too, i'm not putting it all on the president it a washington crisis if you will, a trust deficit. it is one of the reasons -- >> mitch mcconnell talking. >> so you have to have the vice president go to the senate republican leader, two guys -- they're not best of friends. trust me. i know them both. they're not best of friends. they do trust each other. mitch mcconnell knows if joe biden gives him his word, it is good. we need more of that in washington, not less. >> let me ask you, since i have you, something else the president mentioned, asked, of course, about gun violence in th
not the fiscal cliff, but the debt ceiling crisis that's about to come up. the sequester crisis that's about to come up. the continuing resolution crisis that's about to come up. and they're going to have to be hard negotiations back and forth between the two sides. i mean, i hear this line of argument not just from frank bruni but from others including democrats. and i sit there and think, well, what do you expect the president to do? and democrats on the hill to do when faced with a republican opposition that doesn't -- that doesn't want to seemingly compromise? >> so frank's point is that the democrats, like harry reid, instead of getting out of the way and letting the republicans destroy themselves, harry reid will go on the senate floor and be unnecessarily provocative, rub their noses in it. frank doesn't talk about this, but other democrats have even brought up the president's press conference while he was in the middle of negotiations. >> right. >> with the cheerleaders. it was very interesting, having pom-poms saying rah-rah reid. >> pom-poms were missing. >> a lot of people say tha
presidents. even if it was on the other side. democrats don't like voting for the debt ceiling when a republican is president, but you never saw a situation in which democrats suggested somehow that we would go ahead and default if we didn't get 100% of our way. that's just not how it's supposed to work. john carl. >> thank you, mr. president. on the issue of guns, given how difficult it will be, some would say impossible, to get any gun control measure passed through this congress, what are you willing or able to do using the powers of your presidency to act without congress, and i'd also like to know, what do you make of these long lines we're seeing at gun shows and gun stores all around the country? even in connecticut, applications for guns are up since the shooting in newtown. >> well, my understanding is the vice president is going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence. some of them will require legislation, some of them i can accomplish through executive action. and so i'll be reviewing those today, and like i said, i'll speak in more detail to
reached the debt ceiling two weeks ago today. the treasury department is giving us a few weeks of maneuvering room before we begin to default. and yet you have people like the heritage foundation saying today, default is not at issue. how many conservatives truly believe their tactics pose no risk whatsoever to the economy, particularly given what happened the last time they took the debt ceiling hostage? >> look, what heritage put out today is drivel. a transparent attempt -- >> drivel, this is the considered view of an important organization. >> yeah, whose president is jim demint. i don't take it all that seriously. >> okay. >> what they're saying is, well, the government could pay the interest on its bonds, but you could then cut everything else, social security, medicare, education. what they're ignoring is the fact that you would shake the confidence of markets all over the world with unpredictable consequences. this could be of the order of lehman brothers in 2008. john boehner actually knows this. he said the other day that a default would be a financial disaster, and h
outrageous beyond the pale and have we ever made spending cop tin jent op debt ceiling? we did it in 1985, 1990, 1993, 1997, 2010 and 2011. it's more like business as usual with the colleagues, wildly out there. >> obama and the democrats are using default as a weapon. not the republicans. they are saying you do exactly the way we want or you're in favor of default. you are crazy for having conditions but their only can is we have no condition. they shall prioritize debt payment first. period. so if that law was law, if the bill became law it would be impossible to default. then you cut spending to make up the rest of the shortfall. that is a different thing. >> but there are two different conversations going on, default for the whole country and then default on obligation. the 40%, that we can't cover. that there are people out there relying op this. you know -- >> but the problem with that point -- i think you are right on the analytical part. the problem is objective measure. they say it's outrageous to say we can cut spending on the obligations we have to people. it's impossible to cu
